Alera's... sensitivity and willfullness will win readerws over, who will empathize as her choices dwindle. A looming war, characters with intriguingly hidden pasts, and a sad ending set things up nicely for a sequel. --Booklist
Five Stars: If you're looking for a richly painted tapestry of words, a fantasy sort of book written as if Jane Austen were still alive and had decided to write fantasies involving princesses, then you're sure to love Legacy. Like Austen's books, Legacy is a novel of manners, social interactions, gossip, and headstrong, intelligent women deciding for themselves who would be their best marriage partner rather than relying on convention or the wishes of others. The plot will likely please anyone who enjoys the fantasy genre, and the writing style is one which revels in its description and which you'd expect from a highly experienced author with several novels to her credit - yet the author of Legacy is merely fifteen years old. One can only ask, to what further heights can she go? --Curled Up With a Good Kid's Book --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
